The Big Wedding

This week, six outstanding pilots/writers shared their stories in formation (see right hand side of this website) about how they came to aviation.  On the same token, they asked their audiences to reply to their posts.  To share our stories of how we came to aviation and how we also, like them, developed these passions to grow wings and fly.

I have been sharing my story as much as I can to their websites however, I have decided sum my story up with one photo:

My wedding photo.

.....The wedding  was June 18, 1996
my first time on an airplane.  Ever.

.... and ....
I was really nervous...

The reception was at Detroit Wayne Co.-Metropolitan, the wedding ceremony took place in International Airspace over the North Atlantic Track Crossing System.  Her Royal Majesty, The Boeing 747, The Queen of the skies herself was the master of ceremonies as the ceremony itself lasted 7 hours and 55 minutes long.  The wedding party was at Amsterdam Schipol immediately after landing the next morning.  Once landing was complete, I sealed the vow to love aviation for the rest of my life.. 

This marriage has lasted and will last forever. 

My marriage to aviation was complete.
